Mini and we have an announcement that the Souls series is coming on the platform as the grand finale, to me it felt like a major announcement as this very dev laughed at the idea of associating themselves with Nintendo during last gen, as many others. There's also Falcom/NIS with Ys VIII, Falcom, who declared that they would ride the PS4 as they thought their audience was there but now we see them testing waters with Ys. EA keeping some kind of support with Fe and saying they're happy with FIFA's sales. Capcom releasing SF 30th Anniversary.
I'm not worried at all, honestly.
This could even be the real reason the service was delayed
If I had to guess I’d say insiders here got wind of the mini Direct because it had lots of third parties involved, thus more people were involved.
Nintendo themselves aren’t very leaky. If they have an First party focused direct, I bet it won’t leak
Btw, I was wondering if we had any news from Seasons of Heaven, one of the first game announced for Switch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ExCavQVzNrc
Is it still a thing? Can't find anything on these devs..
In other words is it possible for you to miss something lol, could a direct be happening on the 18th that you don’t know about or would that be impossible for you not to know
This despite the fact that they merged their handheld and console lines, so you'd expect a barrage of fun and original games published, and preferably developed by, Nintendo. But no
Just remembered this as well, IF a Direct did happen this week, a big update at Gamestop a couple of days after would make total sense, depending on what's announced. People also have gone through his posts and have backed him up, he isn't making it up. May not mean anything at all, though. So it's anyone's guess. Not making any predictions, let's just wait and see.
And most of their handheld teams stopped developing like during 2015-2016 at the earliest. Most of them are new to HD development and HD development takes awhile anyway. Expecting to see the fruits of a merged Nintendo like that so soon was always unrealistic.
This is going to be a loooong week at work.. again. ;_;
Or Ice Climbers: Global Warming
“Sit in a puddle” ?
I feel like that’s a clue...
Mario Sunshine HD confirmed!! ;) (I’d rather have Galaxy HD :-p)
What if puddles was linking to Sunshine part of GameCube VC? It does say Adventure in Jonneh’s Title.
Puddle is being ported to switch confirmed!
I didn’t even know this existed
In regards to the reddit post yeah what the guy is saying sounds right but it doesn't mean anything. When I worked at Gamestop they would update the Wii U and Wii Demo units with new content that would activate on a certain day but I can't remember a single time that actually was because of any real announcements largely because the store staff could just set the system ahead to whatever date and it would activate the updated material so it would get leaked like instantly. Maybe the Switch demo units work differently but the way hes saying the rep did it it certainly doesn't sound like its any different from how they did it before.
It's also because there are a lot of things we know are coming soon that Nintendo could have discussed (like Bayonetta, Hollow Knight, online service) but didn't, and because they've told us to expect a lot of new types of games and new IPs specifically in 2018, and none of that was in this Direct.
Simpsons Road Rage 2?
In all seriousness I doubt you're teasing but I do think we are going to see a Direct by the end of February at the latest. I could also see this month but who knows.
Also Nintendo has a slight history of a big direct right after a mini. Nintendolife had a bit on it.
But then there is this:
I'm certainly not getting my hopes up. This Fire Emblem guy just gave me some optimism.
Hey guys. As the author of those peculiar Fire Emblem tweets from a few pages back, I'd like to step up and provide a follow-up to them here that should help temper expectations a little bit.
Yes, I've been hearing for a while that another Nintendo Direct is in fact happening later this week, but the new Fire Emblem apparently won't be featured there either. I know nothing of its exact contents, but I've learned that it won't be the one to reveal Fire Emblem. It sounds like another small Nintendo Direct from my understanding, no idea how they'll announce it. A more feature-length Nintendo Direct is supposedly planned for sometime in February, and, in my opinion, that's probably when we may see Fire Emblem after all. Here's hoping, I'm really excited for it. At this point I'm not thinking there'll be another Fire Emblem Direct though, sadly.
Apologies for the commotion. I do actually hear things from time to time, but I also realize it's important to not give people false hope if I can help it, so that's why I'm here to clarify. I hope you guys can forgive me. Either way, I think we can all agree it'd be best to wait until Nintendo says something before we can get all excited again.
Anyways. Fire Emblem will be ready when it's ready. I'm sure we'll see it or here about it soon. Pretty excited about a console FE game
